Kenichi-Aspen offers creative and inspired sushi and Japanese delicacies!

SW logoIt’s no secret that Aspenites love sushi, we have three sushi restaurants all within blocks of each other and each with it’s own distinct personality and flavor arsenal. Kenichi, a local favorite since 1991 serves contemporary, creative, epic sushi and so much more. The atmosphere is modern, sexy and fun.

If you have a curious and adventurous palate, the best way to experience Kenichi is to take a seat at the sushi bar and allow Master sushi chef Kiyomi Sano and his team surprise you with bites of perfection.
